The woman had been taking photos with a small group of German tourists when the attack occurred, according to Zimbabwe National Parks and Wildlife Authority spokesperson Tinashe Farawo.
"The woman was trampled upon by elephants and rushed to a local hospital, unfortunately she died on Wednesday from injuries sustained," Farawo told dpa. She added that she did not know where in Germany the woman came from and was not able to provide her name.
The tourists had been on foot in the park, but got too close to the elephants while taking photographs and were charged.
In 2017, 41 cases of elephants attacking people were reported in Zimbabwe, Farawo said.
Among them was a tourist guide who was trampled and torn apart by a bull elephant before colleagues could come to his aid.
